Georgia is home to lots of great barbeque places.  But just one place makes National Barbecue News’ “Best of the Best Barbecue Restaurants in America.”

The self-proclaimed “World’s #1 Publication” dedicated to all things barbeque named Wiley’s Championship BBQ in Savannah among the top 29 joints in the nation.

The Savannah BBQ place began as a catering operation in Atlanta back in 1983 by Wiley McCrary, and eventually grew into a full-fledged restaurant, according to its website.

It’s not the first time that a BBQ joint from the Peach State has made a “best of the nation” list. Back in 2015, TripAdvisor ranked Joe’s BBQ in Blue Ridge as the #1 BBQ place in the country..

That same year, Southern Living had several Georgia places, including two in Atlanta, among the top 50 BBQ joints in the South. Those were: B’s Cracklin Barbeque (Savannah), Fresh Air Barbecue (Jackson, Ga.), Heirloom Market (Atlanta) and Old Brick Pit Barbeque (Atlanta).
